Let's make more FA Cup memories: Coley

4 December 2014

John Coleman hopes memories of yesteryear will brings the fans to the Store First Stadium for the FA Cup second round tie against Yeovil on Saturday.

While cup runs have been a rarity for Stanley, there are some moments which Coleman and the Accrington fans have cherished.

And he is hoping they can create some more, starting with overcoming League One side Yeovil on Saturday.

"The FA Cup is a great opportunity for us and the fact we have a home tie in the second round is a boost," said the Stanley boss.

"I just hope it catches the imagination of the town as a bigger crowd can make a difference. I am not just talking about finances but our chances of progressing into the third round and a plum tie.

"It won't be easy against Yeovil and they will fancy their own chances of progressing but, if we play to our strengths, we will be a difficult nut to crack.

"We have had some crackers in the past - Bournemouth away, I thought we played smashing against Colchester and also against Fulham, despite Darran Kempson's sending off which was unjust.

"Then of course there is Andy Gouck's goal which will live long in everyone's memory.

"The FA Cup creates a buzz, they are one-off games and no one will be favourite on Saturday. We have already beaten a League One side in Notts County and, while it doesn't necessarily follow we will do it again, we can take confidence from that."
